Excellent post,I can't point to any examples but I have heard a number of them over the years.In listening to your links it does sound very similar with the Bird Song sample sounding a bit sharper,I think UJ52 explained it perfectly for people like myself with a poor music vocabulary and brought it home with a good point about Jerry's style.This would seem like a post for LIA to dole out some wisdom on,time permitting.

I get what you're saying but to come up with examples on the allusional fly is beyond my cognitive capabilities at the present time.

There are tons of "almost" mind left body, nobody's fault and blues themed that occur very frequently when transitioning into another song.

If Koons is as greedy as some in the community have mentioned- i.e. refusing to invest additional resources to ensure Jerry's personal recordings are properly preserved (I've only read about this and the allegations could be complete fabrications) why doesn't she release "pure Jerry" stuff like Zappa's Shut Up and play You're Guitar box sets???
I'd certainly buy a compilation of top notch high quality Garcia Guitar solos. Zappa released 3!!! I bought all of those and love them.
